May 26 Olean Pines Update

On the morning of May 26, 2020, the Pines of Olean received more results from our newly State-directed large scale employee COVID-19 testing.  We had multiple negative results, and 1 positive results, which brings the total number of positive results among staff to 3.  As required we have provided notification to all families and staff members of the positive results.  We have also started testing the residents that we have received consent for as a precautionary measure. 

The facility will continue to test all employees twice weekly as directed by the Executive Order issued by Governor Cuomo.  Additional positive test results may arise as reports continue to come in.  Plans are in place to accommodate staffing needs and challenges that may occur as a result of employees being taken out of work due to this testing mandate.  Plans are also in place to isolate residents who may receive a positive test result to avoid the spread of infection.
